. some romney advisers to keep the focus on the economy, some are saying romney should have a major foreign policy speech days after the debate. over the weekend, the white house was on the defensive after the friday's announcement that the deadly assault on the u.s. consulate in bengahzi was deliberate and organized. peter king of new york called on susan rice to resign as u.s. ambassador to the united nations after she initially claimed the attack on the consulate was part of the spontaneous protest after an anti-islamic video. yesterday paul ryan and john mccain slammed the administration's handling of the deadly attack. >> the response was slow, confused, inconsistent. they first said it was a youtube video and a spontaneous mob. we now know it was a planned terrorist attack if this was one tragic incident that would be a tragedy in itself. the problem is it's part of a bigger picture that the obama foreign policy is unraveling before our eyes on tv screens. >> i think it interferes with the depiction that the administration is trying to convey that al qaeda is on the wane, ever
'm offering. and he was able to control this debate. >> did you think that romney will see a bounce coming out of this, the way that obama had a bounce coming out of the convention, in charlotte, with bill clinton's famous speech? >> he is looking for a comeback moment. what happens next is going to be important. he's going to be giving a speech on foreign policy. he'll be asked about this in interviews in the coming days. if he can build on this, yes. he will start to close the gap. the romney campaign, just happened just at the right moment for them to capitalize on something. knowing you have five weeks left. there's a couple of turns left. >> the next presidential debate, tuesday, october 16th. >> thanks, rick. >> thank you, guys. >>> again, we extend our thanks to rick klein for that. we'll have much more from the abc political team coming up in a little while on "good morning america." >>> now, turning overseas to breaking news from along the border between turkey and syria. for a second-straight day, turkish artillery has opened fire on syria's targets. that's in retaliation for the syr
a speech on that standpoint. but as i've read the excerpts -- and i'm curious, what would governor romney be doing right now different on iran succinctly? i hear you. i just don't know differently -- do you agree with prime minister netanyahu and declare a red line? >> so governor romney believes there have been a lot of mixed messages on iran sent over the last few years. so on the one hand, sanctions have been put in place and have an impact on the economy. on the other hand, the administration fought these sanctions for years. it was only when they were faced with strong bipartisan support for these sanctions, overwhelming bipartisan support, that the administration got on board. they were silent -- >> why? why did they take so long? >> if you look at the letters sent out to capitol hill from secretary geithner, jim steinberg, secothat sanctions w have a devastating on the u.s. economy, global economy, that the sanctions would undermine their diplomatic efforts. >> the timing of the sanctions. you all would have done it much earlier? >> if you look at the sanctions now, the news over t
leaders in 2007. they are billing the video as a bombshell labelling it obama's other race speech. the video's publication widely seen as an effort to counter the damage inflicted on romney's candidacy by his hidden video comments about the 47%. in the video released yesterday, then candidate obama was critical of the government's response to hurricane katrina. >> when hurricane andrew struck in florida, people said, look at this devastation. we don't expect you to come up with the money. here's the money to rebuild. we're not going to wait for you to scratch it together because you're part of the american family. what's happening down in new orleans? where's your dollar in where's your staff for that money? makes no sense. tells me the bullet hasn't been taken out.

are in the works for mitt romney to deliver a major foreign policy speech shortly after wednesday's debate. what do you think of that? you think he should do that? >> yes. i think, as i said, right after the killing, that wasn't the time to talk about this. >> right. >> now is the time, several weeks later, to talk about it. john heilemann, the lead in "the new york times," mistake in faith and security seen at libya mission before benghazi raid. response to the june bomb raised confidence in local guards. this benghazi story is an absolute mess. i think -- i've heard stuart stevens as saying let's focus on the economy. i think stuart stevens is exactly right. americans don't care as much in the polls about foreign policy. but several weeks later after this, i think it's very legitimate now that the press is going in and a couple of weeks have passed since the ambassador's death, now, yes. i mean, he's got a responsibility to talk about how badly the white house bungled this. >> i think he does. and indeed, you know, i think right now, the focus is a little misplaced. the notion that -- i think the
to be careful about that. and the president has to look presidential. he can't let governor romney get under his skin. he can't appear irritable. he certainly can't talk down to him. >> yeah. >> if governor romney given bill clinton's speech and given the bump in the polls and the right track/wrong track stuff has improved. people have sort of come around to thinking that maybe it was a tough four years for anyone. can romney ever make the case that it is still a really bad economy that we're under? this is the worst recession. can he make it without looking nasty? >> i think he's got to make it. i think he's got to get people to look down the road and see the train wreck that's coming. >> not the one we've already had. >> 1.1 trillion in deficits racking up every year. we can run about 200 and keep the debt of gdp constant. which means we have a $900 billion tax increase coming. there's only about $1 trillion of income taxes. these are enormous tax increases that have to come. the president has fought every spending cut that's come along. he has a little bit, $50 billion from seniors and obama
's debate. >> reporter: mitt romney said he had nothing to do with releasing this video and it shows president barack obama is engaged in decisive class warfare. it is a speech at a historically black college and in he praises reverend rite who da -- reverend wright after he has since denounced him. >> where is your dollar, what is happening down in new orleans, makes no sense, tells me the bullet has not been taken out. >> releasing the video is a transparent to change the subject to mitt romney's more recent talks and he took a break while mitt romney went somewhere else. the two scare off from denver. reporting live allison burns ktvu channel 2 morning news. >>> people around the bay area are invited to watch debating parties tonight and it will be in san mateo count and antioch starting 5:30 tea party express are holding events at a group called technology for obama will hold a debate party. >>> they will challenging california's new law to ban therapy that tries to turn gay or lesbians straight. they are asking them to rule the law unconstitutional. governor brown signed the law
limits and all of that, i think it's romney going on and on and giving a non-speech and saying absolutely nothing and we will learn nothing from him. >> great, thank you for calling. we will be right back here at the bill press show. call us 1-866-55-press. i'm jamal simmons sitting in for bill press who is taking a much-needed day off. we will see you in just a couple minutes. >> this is the bill press show. pwhraf. >> this is the bill press show, live on your radio and current tv. >> good morning everybody. it is 7:33 here in washington d.c. i am jamal simmons sitting in for bill press on the bill press show. call in at 1-866-55-press, that's 1-866-55-press. we are talking about debates and big debate moments. we're going to switch gears a little bit right now. i want to talk about something else that's been in the news. i'm sure there are not many people watching the bill press show who actually watch fox news sean hannity and tucker carlson and that gang. some of the people here get paid extra so that they watch fox news and they can tell you about it. peter, you know something about
loved speeches he cannot get enough of them. mitt romney, the one that we know has invested in companies there were called pioneers of outsourcing jobs to other countries. the guy on stage last night. he said that he does not even know that there were such laws that encouraged outsourcing. never heard of them! never heard of them! never heard of tax rates for companies that ship rate jobs overseas. perhaps he needs a new accountant? now, we know for sure that it was not the real macron because he seems to be doing just fine with his accounts. the roll-mitt romney--and you see the man on stage last night he does not want to be held accountable. for those real mitt romney. and that is because he knows full well that we do not want what he has been selling for the last one year. (cheers & applause) gov. mitt romney could be dancing around his decisions but if you want to be president you owe the american people the truth. >> that is the mathematics of the issues and we cannot afford to go down that road again. we cannot afford more budget cuts and tax cuts for the wealthy and cutting educat
been talking about this on the stump speech. and i mean, tell me why for mitt romney the economy is not resonating with him more. when you look at the polls and our polling in particular, the president and mitt romney are basically neck and neck on the issue of the economy. a little bit of an edge for your candidate on the issue of unemployment. but why, with all of those statistics that you just rattled off, why isn't your guy, the business guy, doing better on that? >> it is somewhat perplexing given how poorly the president has managed the economy. there's been a lot of promises, and platitudes. but not a lot of results. that's mitt romney's shtick. he's about getting results, as governor of massachusetts and turning around the olympics. i think there's been a couple things. one the democrats got a little bump out of the convention. two, i think the president has done a good job on tv with some of his face to the camera commercials, making his promises. even though they're some of the same ones he made before, he sounds good. >> it's resonating -- >> now they're actually getti
noonan's convention speech, he became himself again, it transformed him, and he beat dukakis. this was mitt romney not trying to be the man of the people. this was mitt romney being who -- an extraordinarily successful guy throughout life. >> i have a general rule about this. warm usually beats cold in these debates. and it was very striking to me, i was watching it on my clock, that it took obama over a half an hour before he mentioned an actual individual human being. everything was abstract. in romney's first answer, he was talking about the person that he just met in milwaukee and another person he met here. romney was actually warmer than obama last night. >> and what a coincidence that he talked about meeting a person in a swing state he has to win. the stars were just lined up last night. >> toledo. >> it reminds me of the nice little cashier i met in toledo. >> yes. >> do you not think that one of the more interesting story lines today and for the next two weeks is how does the obama campaign react to what happened last night in. >> oh, absolutely. >> we're going to f
cuts. look, folks, we've seen this movie before. >> a romney spokeswoman says she couldn't agree more. she agrees the president's policies have, quote, buried the middle class. congressman paul ryan hit the campaign trail in iowa tuesday. his stump speech focused on the economy and in an interview with a local tv station, ryan talked about what he called the unraveling of the obama administration's foreign policy. >> iran closer to a nuclear weapon, the russians are thwarting us every step of the world. people around the world sense america is weakening. when we project weakness abroad through the qirve indication of this administration, through the devastating defense cuts they're proposing, that means our enemies, our adversaries become more brazen. they're more willing to test us. >> congressman ryan also called the white house response to the consulate attack in libya, quote, slow and confused. >>> millions of americans will watch tonight's debate by some estimates maybe 50 million. it's in denver again at 9:00. it's just about one in five voters though who might be changing their
romney was a little bit like the old mitt romney. i happened to watch an old c-span speech of his when he was running the olympics. he was very eloquent. >> we haven't seen him at all. >> that's his campaign's fault for not putting him out. >> we have sound bites and gaffes as people cut different things they want to share. >> he's not put on to do live -- look, president obama has gone on "the view" and letterman. >> i don't want him going on "the view" or "letterman" and i would criticize not meeting netanyahu and calling myself eye candy. >> it resonated when he said the government should not pick winners and losers, everybody beyond left and right agrees with that. when he actually challenged the fact that the dodd-frank does not allow -- >> banks putting out mortgages. >> they're too big to fail. >> let's bring in harwood. >> before we do, we want to show you in case you didn't see this last night, this was a heated debate. you had the two candidates facing off for the first of three debates. one of the things they argued about was romney's tax plan. >> for 18 months he's been runnin
statistics cooks these numbers. >> reporter: as his campaign shows new momentum, romney is also trying to put his biggest gaffe behind him, repudiating his own comments about the so called 47%. >> well, clearly in a campaign with hundreds if not thousands of speeches and question and answer sessions, now and then you're going to say something that doesn't come out right. in this case, i said something that's just completely wrong. >> reporter: mitt romney has campaign events this week in florida, but around those events he'll be joined by senator rob portman, the one that plays president obama in the debate camp practice sessions. mitt romney is getting ready for the next session, next debate, hoping his mum carries over next week. >> john harwood is cnbc's chief washington correspondent. thanks for being here. i don't know if it's possible to strip politics away from these new unemployment numbers, but if you can, explain, does the president get credit for these numbers coming down, and how real are they? >> well, the president gets credit or blame for whatever the economic conditions are on
him as a president. >> has he? >> no he has not. >> why not? >> his convention speech he has run a personality campaign and nobody is going to out personality barack obama. >> for romney to just breakthrough what looks like an increasing race in which he has fewer chances to change the dynamics. obama has to just not make it and he wins. this is a tough situation for a challenger particularly on the first debate. the pressure is on domestic policy. and so this is in some ways the most important hour left in the race. >> would you agree with that? this is mitt romney's moment? >> he has to breakthrough. the problem is for him is that if obama does well and romney does well then it is the status quo and the status quo favors obama. >> you don't think it is a little bizarre that we put so much weight into an hour and a half where they are delivering prepared lines? we have a build up to the campaign and then we turn and say we have an hour and a half. >> it is an hour and a half unfiltered. we get lies in 30 second ads. we get lies -- >> step up. >> they have been preparing to deliv
the real speech. so we're going to go back to charlotte to the dnc. >> sure, sure, mitt romney loves our lakes and our trees. he loves our cars so much they even have their own elevator. in romney's world, the cars get the elevator and the workers get the shaft. sure he's made a lot of money. good for him. or maybe i should say good for him. president obama with the auto rescue, he saved more than one million american jobs. but it wasn't just michigan. hey, hey, hey. in florida 35,000 jobs ohio. manufacturing is rebounding. why? and on your ballot, the d is for drive forward. the r is for reverse. in this election we are drive ing forward, not back. let's reelect the great president barack obama. >> that is just the most fantastic thing i have ever seen. >> you have to appreciate a speaker who signs the speech while she's delivering. orally. we are driving forward. >> that was incredible. >> you worked with her. >> i worked with her. that's not the jennifer gramhome i knew. >> maybe she was just excited. >> clearly. >> tomorrow morning on this very program, bob woodward and mika's dad. >
years has been, quote, buried. we agree. that means we need to stop digging by electing mitt romney the next president of the united states! >> steve: mr. biden off the teleprompter there? >> martha: you know what is interesting, they almost never release the transcripts of his speeches. so you can't, as you can with others, say here is where he clearly went off the teleprompter, so we'll never know. >> steve: it's another joe bidenism, the last big one was where he famously sat down in virginia, mitt romney is going to put y'all back in chains. >> brian: right. >> martha: southern accent that day, too. >> steve: he did. >> brian: the other thing is the president had to get prepared for the debate. paul ryan and joe biden had to carry their weight. it didn't really work too well. >> steve: you know how mitt romney prepared yesterday out in denver for the debate. he had the burrito bowl at chipotle. >> brian: right. >> steve: he said he usually goes with a burrito, but yesterday. >> martha: burrito bowl. let's get a look at some headlines this morning. there are concerns today that t
a serious of speeches. this was a debate. they were supposed to engage one another. and i can't imagine that the governor isn't dispointed that the president wasn't more aggressive in sayinsaying, okay governor romney, what are the specifics is? how are you going to reform the tax code? >> there was a quote from a james carville, governor, who, of course, is a big obama supporter, and basically his assessment was, the president was just not sharp. here's what he said. let's play that. >> i had one overwhelming impression. i did everything i could not to reach it, but i had to reach it. it looked like romney wanted to be there and president obama didn't want to be there. he seemed like he was happy to be there, debating, and president obama gave you the impression that this whole thing was kind of a lot of trouble. the president didn't bring his a-game. >> do you think that's true? and if so, what happened? and is it as simple as a lack of practice, as some have posited? >> well, i think this campaign is the product of many days. and this was the first day that was not a disastrous and m
